Fabbrica del Vapore

Milan’s young art scene finds a home in this stark, industrial chic setting

Fabbrica del Vapore (The Steam Factory) is set in a disused tram factory converted into an arts complex for music, theatre, dance and cinema. With its hundreds of subspaces, cathedral and smaller wings, it’s easy to get lost here, but it’s also worth pursuing: explore modern art by some of the city’s up-and-comers by day, or stumble across concerts, DJ sets and installations by night.

Top tip:

If you’re in the area, don’t miss Le Cantine Isola (one of Milan’s oldest wine shops), which is just around the corner.
